maybe im not sure but i guess it could be real
no but if yes this god is a jerk
yes but i do wonder sometimes if its true
I thought this was relevant...

Yes, i do believe that god does exist.
UNDER THE BRIDGE
Christianity all the way!
Why do we spread the Good News? Because the Bible tells us to. This isn't just a command; it's something we're willing to do, bring people to the realization that there is a living light somewhere! Look around you. No, let me rephrase that. Look at Earth. Look at stars. Look at the universe. Honestly, how could have science have created something as pure, vast and accurate as that? I'm not saying that's how it started out, but that's what God made it evolve into. And look at water. Colourless, odourless, neither solid nor gas, yet without it nothing could live on Earth! This probably won't prove anything, but if you think about it deeply enough, it might all come to you. God isn't something you prove to people, it's something you make people understand. Atheists can be just as willing and humble as Christians, but even though they might be grateful for life, are they grateful for life to God, the Creator of life itself? No. If it may seem like I'm expressing prejudice, I don't intend to. And honestly, most of you debaters know that you won't be convincing anyone, so what would it even matter to you?

Actually people have been convinced even though they where not fully religious from the start but in doubt.
Furthermore we, or at least I, am not trying to convince anyone but rather just taking interest in the topic while sharing my opinion and perspective on it.
EDIT: This is not really related to the rest of the post but I really wanted to make this clearer to most of our religious debaters here, thinking that we disrespect everything they do and stand for.
If you respect our right to have our beliefs, why are you attempting to convince us that there is no God? If you truly respected our right to have these beliefs, you wouldn't try to alter them. You would just let them be.

In any case, religious people are ALWAYS trying to convince people that there's god because that's how religion works. It could be said that you have no respect for Atheists because you're trying to spread the word of the bible, but of course you'd disagree.
Notice that this is the Does god exist? thread. We are supposed to discuss the topic.
But if so, theists disrespect atheism since a lot of them try to change the opinions of us.
Oh and no-one gives a **** about what you believe in TED. Neither are we trying to change your opinion so leave these bs side arguments and stick to the topic for once please.
I've already mentioned it in this thread, but it's come into topic again...
When asked to rate their belief in the paranormal or spiritual etcetera a group of control and test subjcts showed a diverse spread of ratings.
The control subjects lived their lives as normal, but the test subjects were given tasks and problems that required them to think analytically.
After the experiment the test and control subjects were asked to rate their level of belief again, the control subjects showed litle difference but a majority of the test subjects, even those who were very religious, consistantly rated their level of belief lower than they had done before.
The conclusion is that the more analyticaly and critically a person thinks the less likely they are to believe in gods and spirits- is this demonstrable in this thread? Yes it is, because arguments from passion and ignorance are incredibly common amongst proponents in comparrison to skeptics.
This doesn't mean that everyone who believes in spirits and ghosts is stupid, but it suggests they might be less acustomed to solving tasks critically.
